President Donald Trump continued his surprise Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., was selected as Joe Biden’s running mate, saying “nobody more insulting to Biden than she was.”
“She said far worse about Biden than I ever did, and now she’s running for vice president,” Trump said during his daily press briefing Wednesday. “So how does that work?”
His remarks came shortly as Harris and Biden waged their own attacks on the president in her unveiling of the official Biden-Harris 2020 ticket.
“I didn’t watch; I saw a moment of him speaking, a moment of her speaking,” Trump told reporters. “He made a choice. Look, he picked her. I watched her. I watched her poll numbers go boom, boom, boom, down to almost nothing.
“She left angry; she left mad. There was nobody more insulting to Biden than she was. She said horrible things about him, including accusations made about him by a women where she, I guess, believed the woman.
“And now all of a sudden she’s running to be vice president, saying how wonderful he is. I thought it was such an unusual pick because she said such bad things.”
Trump was referring to the sexual assault allegations of former Biden staffer Tara Reade. Harris, after grilling Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh about his own sexual assault allegations, said she believed Biden’s accuser.
“She said horrible things, she mocked him, only mocked him,” Trump said. “That’s why I felt it was a very risky pick, because I’m sure that will be played back – not necessarily by me, but others. It will be played back.”
Biden responded to Trump’s prior day attacks on Harris, during her introduction event Wednesday.
“You all knew it was coming; you could have set your watches to it,” Biden said. “Donald Trump has already started his attacks, calling Kamala, quote, ‘nasty,’ whining about how she’s, quote, ‘mean’ to his appointees.
“It’s no surprise, because whining is what Donald Trump does best, better than any president in American history. Is anyone surprised Donald Trump has a problem with strong women across the board? We know that more is to come.”
